Five continents, 28 countries, one family and one year – it’s the stuff of dreams for anyone with wanderlust. Swing by REI in Concord tonight at 7 p.m. and meet the Highams, a Mountain View family who made that dream come true last year, journeying around the world from the Great Wall of China to the Amazon Basin. (That’s them in the photo above, setting out on the Amazon River) Adventure? Oh yeah. Broken bones? That too. Hear how they did it, what they learned and what they packed in addition to tandem bikes and schoolbooks.
